1. It was not very hard to mix the color swatches, I just had to keep testing and playing with the colors until I reached to right shade to it.
2. I made the browns by mixing different complementary colors such as purple and yellow, blue and orange, green and red, ext.
3. I picked to paint a road in the sunset with trees shadowed. I picked this because I really enjoy mixing colors to create a sunset sky, which was really fun to do. I also wanted to do the trees because I have never done that before will painting, so I wanted to learn how and it was a fun new style of painting for me which should help me in my future paintings.
